"Time is a circle."
Which brings to mind lines from a beloved Tori Amos song:
"Circles and circles and circles again The girl's in circles got to stop spinning" -Tori Amos- "Cloud on My Tongue-
Well, here's the truth: writers never stop spinning. Spinning tales, spinning around in circles. When I was a kid, I did that endlessly...spinning around as fast as I could was the best.
It's good to spin around. It's also good to get somewhere. Move with the wind, but at your own pace.
I talk fast, I move fast. But I take my time with what's truly important. Writing is essential. Lifeblood. It's carried me through. It's saved me time and again, brought me back to myself, to who and what I love and need.
